Celine Tam is a 9-year-old contestant on “America’s Got Talent.” Since her audition where she sang “My Heart Will Go On” by Celine Dion earlier this season, she has stunned the crowd with her beautiful voice and sweet personality.

Celine made it through to the next round, the “Judge Cuts.” During this round, she sang “How Am I Supposed to Live Without You” by Michael Bolton.

The crowd, other contestants, and the judges were absolutely amazed by her performance. Guest judge Laverne Cox was so impressed that she honored her with the Golden Buzzer Award, which sends her directly to the live rounds.

Laverne said, “I just wanna eat you up and take you home. You are so adorable and so cute and your voice is amazing!” Celine replied, “Thank you; you’re so beautiful, too!” Laverne finished, “Thank you so much; I’m really blown away. You are so talented, unbelievable. I might just have to…” Then, she hit the infamous, golden buzzer.

Celine’s reaction was priceless! Her jaw immediately dropped in shock. Her family’s reaction was also memorable. Her parents were screaming and jumping up and down. Even her younger little sister looked happily surprised!
